ens - think differently
What defines today's leaders is their ability to innovate. To succeed, you have to think differently from the rest and forge ahead with a new approach to break through the old barriers.
Solutions to legal problems are often found by exploring new avenues which fall outside a traditional approach to law. At ENS, we focus on creating just such solutions.
ens - beyond convention
Acting for top corporate clients over the years has made ENS one of South Africa's leading law firms. This, however, has not led to us becoming complacent. In fact, we don't offer our clients a customary package, a previously used precedent or a standard letter. Instead, we deliver more than what is expected.
Working with our clients, we continue to find fresh, "unexpected" solutions. We create legal products that add value and stand out by being remarkably different from the normal offering. Our aim is not only to protect your assets and minimise your losses, but also to strive to create solutions that will expand your business and allow you to exploit new opportunities.
ens - inspired solutions
"if you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got"
Real innovation thrives in the bringing together of a multitude of disciplines with one common goal. Our internal processes are cross-linked - connecting together specialist teams of professionals to give you the upper hand.
We combine our financial, commercial and legal expertise to deliver a solution which is aimed at providing our clients with a competitive advantage.
ens - diverse minds
We are a firm of diverse and free-thinking people. With our teams of highly skilled professionals, we lead the industry in creating a firm that is truly representative of the people of South Africa.
When we recruit staff, we look for a mix of leadership, emotional intelligence and intellect. We hire people who enjoy the challenge of a seemingly impossible task - self-starters with the ability to read between the lines, who are skilled and focussed and who have the ability to work in teams. We are far more than a group of qualified independent professionals working together in an orderly manner. We are a passionate, interdependent team that is truly able to understand your business and work with you in order for you to achieve your business objectives.
ens - world class business
As you would expect from an organisation with a sustainable track record of excellence in the corporate world, our structure is based on world-class business principles.
Our state-of-the-art IT-driven support systems provide our professionals with a constant stream of up-to-the-minute data from around the world. Any factor that may give our clients a competitive edge: a comparable matter, a similar case, a piece of legislation just promulgated - every relevant piece of information that can possibly be obtained, is obtained. Highly experienced professionals are dedicated to gathering, filtering and making information available at a pace and volume few can match.
All of our operations which demand skills outside the practice of law, are managed by experts in their respective fields (for example, information technology, information centre, client services, human resources). This infrastructure enables our legal professionals to focus on that for which we have become renowned - the business of law.
ens - client service and continuity
ENS is focussed on developing a culture of excellent client service.
Although our growth over the years has been exponential, this has not diminished our passion for client service and we remain absolutely committed to sustaining the long-standing values that have entrenched the relationships of trust that we have with our clients.
